My Fat

Up one up two not down; oh no!!
I can’t tell my fat where to go.
It seems to love my hips the best,
And on my thighs it loves to rest.

I wish it would go north sometime,
I won’t complain, I wouldn't mind.

But every time I gain a pound,
The fat just seems to settle…down;
South it goes and south it’ll be,
I guess that’s just the shape for me.
